Hi Bassman/NZ; I did do all that stuff and having seen both sides of that coin I can tell you you're heads up, Craig.

I was 67 last May. 16 seems like yesterday to the mind, but not the body. Paul Selfe.

I'm just 2 years younger than my truck; bought it in 1957. That makes me 74, Byron.

I was born 30 to 40 years too late, I'm 49. I'm suspecting if you took this poll on the Model A and Model T forums the average age would go up?

I bet the median age 58 and the average age is 59. Ryan could set up a deal that would do all of the calculations. He does this sort of thing on the HAMB and I think one of them was for age. You should ask him.
